straight down to bob and rick. it is a new quarter, a new week. i believe since 1980 the fourth quarter has generally been the best quarter of the year for the s&p. could it be a little different this time round considering we've got lot of things to get through, like an election and an upcoming fiscal cliff? >> yeah. i think most important thing is still going to be whether we can keep the expected momentum in some of the earnings. this may be the trough for earnings. we'll be at negative in q3 for the earnings compared to the third quarter of last year. a lot of expectations are riding on pushing up the earnings this quarter, particularly in the financials. we're expecting 20% growth. if you ask me where the tension is, i'm not sure they can pull out that kind of growth. dow industrials, we sort of sold going into bernanke's -- he spoke at the economics club in the midwest. the important thing here, no real change in his policies. we did see some comments on inflation. he's not that worried about it. elsewhere in the major sectors, risk on today. materials, financials, industrials all to

" santelli in chicago. bob pisani, why isn't the market up 500 points given this fantastic job number? >> i think the numbers are fairly modest on the job increases which is what i'm interested in, how many new jobs are there out there. so i'm not terribly surprised. but with that said, we've had a pretty good weekover all. other headline news, ism, ism services, auto numbers and even retail sales were not bad overall. look at the numbers. my point is we've had a broad advance in the stock market. when you see financials going up with health care, consumer discretionary and consumer staples going up as much as consumer discretionary, both up 1.9%, industrials, here's the laggard -- tech because of the terrible hewlett-packard guidance we got. everything else has pretty much had an excellent week overall. for the groelobal economy, numb weren't that bad either. next week a number of things will be happening in europe but the s&p, germany was up not far from the new high. spain was up. brazil a bit of an outlier. overall, a fairly good week for the stock market. >> rick, what say you? why are

you, bob. i think michelle was right overall, it's a good report in the sense that we created over 100,000 jobs. unemployment has come down and earnings are going up. but we're being helped by part-time employment and the structural issues are still there. so overall, it's a good report, but the market is right to question how good it can be sustained. of course, there's all the issues between the household survey and the establishment survey. >> what do you think about all those issues? they've led to a lot of conspiracy theories. we say the jobs numbers, and i think the average american thinks there's one jobs number, right? there's job growth. we find out what that number is. that is what leads to the unemployment number. but they're completely disconnected. we really see that today. jack welsh says there's a problem with the voracity of these numbers. >> i think what we're seeing is just a reality from month to month. over time they tend to converge. in any one month, you do get differences. this month is one of them. >> are they open to manipulation? >> i don't buy the conspiracy

in florida campaigning for me so thank you to bob mcdonnell for all the work he's doing. a great governor. and you may know that a couple of nights ago we had a debate. you may have gotten a chance to see that. and it was a good experience, i think, for me, for the president, for people who watched. it was a debate of substance. we talked about the issues that america faces. i got the chance to ask the president some questions. i think people across the country have wanted to ask the president such as why it was that when america was needing jobs so badly he was pushing for obama care instead of working to get jobs to the american people. got the chance to ask him why there's still 23 million americans out of work or stopped looking for work, struggling to find good full time jobs? i got the chance to ask him why is the middle class so buried in this country. incomes have gone down. price of gasoline has doubled. price of food and clothing and almost everything else you buy has gone up. people in the middle class has been squeezed, buried as the vice president said. got the chance to talk

? who would have thought? i did. we did, bob. we did. got it. >>> today ben bernanke our valiant fed chief reaffirmed the thought of keeping the interest rates down. let me give you the basic cramer english translation. ben's once again saying buy dividend stocks, high yields. because if you went income from your investn'ts dividends are going to be the only game in town for years to come. bernanke is promising that the returns from bonds will be puny. same thing with cds. he can make that promise. you need to swap in the dividend stocks that's what we'll introduce you to prologis. it's a global real estate interest trust. they specialize in distribution space for customers that do business in multiple countries. that's why some of the biggest customer, dhl, amazon, pepsi -- pepsico and fedex. think of prologis, one that sports a yield, exactly the kind of dividend stock you want in the low interest rate environment. it's rallied since the beginning of the year, but late it's pulled back from three points. it could be giving you a good entry point here. first though, before making an

smart. ♪ >>> joining us, bob brown, fidelity investment bond group. did you see the journal piece, investors jump off the junk pile, totally overheated. is that your view? >> the junk market has had a tremendous run this year. up over north of 12%. at the end of the day, i think investors are still looking for some level of income appreciation and the junk market is doing that. high yield companies have never been in better shape from a balance sheet perspective. and cash flows that they're providing. p so we continue to see the massive capital gains that we've seen or the run up in price appreciation that we've seen this year. probably not, but i think it's still a diversification. >> what kind of current yield can you get on an average junk bond? what's average, bb or something? >> bb. you're going to -- right now investor grade index spread is at approximately 140 basis points. rallied from 241 basis points. >> so what could i get? what percent and then maybe hope for maybe a little capital appreciation, but hopefully no capital loss. what kind of yield can i get? >> high quali

with the lead director and ken chernault and bob mcdonald and laid out our concerns. bob is focused on succeeding and keeping his job, it's a good dynamic. the board wants to give him a little bit more time and see if he can make some progress and if not, this is one of the best boards in america. >> what is the real problem? it's something built up over the years. >> part of the problem is there's not a culture of efficiency, let's put it that way at procter & gamble. it is a fat and bloated company. competitors are nimble, have better cost structures, allows them to reinvest in growth the company has not been able to. you look at unilever, making the company much more efficient. >> the '90s with dirk jagger, mick jagger, whatever, and lastly procter & gamble, you were talking about the last couple of years, p&g was turned around, sounds like we're back to the future. >> there was a problem and the board stepped in and they found someone internally, someone who has been one of the great ceos of procter & gamble. >> what is your next move if nothing happens at p&g? what cards do you

. >>> let's go to bob down on the floor. >> for a second day s&p futures went up in the middle of the night and went up because europe opened. this happened yesterday. we moved right up as soon as europe opened. happened again today. that's the reason that we are open right now. we are up right now. the big question on the spanish bank bailout, of course, is as you have been mentioning, it is when, not if. the two dates important are this one, number one, october 8th, that's monday. that's the date that the eu's permanent rescue fund, the esm, becomes fully operational. that's october 8. that's also the date where the first board meeting of this rescue fund, the esm, is going to happen. that's why, and i think melissa mentioned this, some speculation and request came over the weekend. that makes sense procedurally. spain already has the budget and the evaluation of the bank recapitalization. if it doesn't happen then, the next date everyone is talking about is october 18th and 19th. that's when the eu leaders get together and that's the next likely date. those are the ones two people are ta
